Damian Lonnee asked the Board if a sign “oncoming Traffic does not stop” could be placed at the corner of N Woodward Stand E Main/S Woodward as he was almost hit by a car thinking he had to stop when he didn’t have to.

Desiree Frank inquired about revisiting chickens.  Last month she requested this be revisited with a full Board.  President Tarr explained that Attorney Wurtz informed the Board there is no appeal process.  According to Robert’s Rules of Order, a motion to reconsider must be made by a member of the village board who voted with the prevailing side; that is, a member who voted “yes” if the original motion passed or “no” if the motion failed.  New Boards also have the right to reconsider old agenda items.  Someone from the “new” Board could also request that chickens be reconsidered.
